xspace – Define commands that appear not to eat spaces
The xspace package provides a single command that looks at what comes after it in the command stream, and decides whether to insert a space to replace one “eaten” by the TeX command decoder. The decision is based on what came after any space, not on whether there was a space (which is unknowable): so if the next thing proves to be punctuation, the chances are there was no space, but if it’s a letter, there’s probably a need for space. This technique is not perfect, but works in a large proportion of cases.
The package is part of the latex-tools bundle in the LaTeX required distribution.
